I am currently a member of a federal political party. I am currently not a member of any provincial political party, although I have been in the past. In the past, I have donated money to federal and provincial political parties. If you feel partisan influence will taint the objectivity of the writing on this site, you are correct. There are other resources available – I will make no claims to write in a “balanced” fashion, although the intention is to be objective. Most political sites on the internet are run by people with partisan influence, so truly non-partisan sources are difficult to find.
During the 2013 BC Election, I am the financial agent for John van Dongen, running for re-election as an independent candidate in Abbotsford South. I do not use any “insider information” in any of my projections.
I do not operate any other Twitter accounts and I do not publish anonymous messages.
